Our Approach to Sustainability

The Sony vision is to “continue to deliver kando (emotion) and anshin (the feeling of safety and reassurance) to people and society around the world through the pursuit of technology and new challenges”.

To carry out this vision, sustainability is an essential aspect of everything we do at Sony UK TEC.

We are committed to continue providing valuable solutions to further our progress with corporate and United Nations sustainability initiatives.

Through innovation and sound business practice, we endeavour to enhance our corporate value and contribute to the development of a sustainable society and inspire the next generation to work together towards creating a more sustainable future.

The various activities we undertake at our operation relate to four pivotal aspects: Community Engagement, Environment, Accessibility, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I). Each pillar is aligned with our broader corporate initiatives, as well as the United Nations’ 17 Development Goals.

Under this pillar, we are committing to activities that relate to both our employees and our local community.

Since its founding, Sony has viewed employees not as a group, but as individuals. Sony respects the independence of each individual and their enthusiasm for taking on challenges. We cherish a corporate culture that places the company and employees on equal terms. Based on the partnership of choice between Sony and each individual employee each party is accountable for being responsive to the needs of the other. Sony’s People Philosophy is described with the phrase, “Special You, Diverse Sony.” Sony seeks to maximise the value that each of its diversely talented employees can create, thereby driving the Sony Group’s sustainable value creation. In addition, under the slogan “For the Next Generation” and based on our policy of community engagement, it is our responsibility as a global company to recognise various social issues and contribute to the creation of a sustainable society via community engagement activities.

True to our commitment, at Sony, we conduct our business in a responsible manner and provide environmentally conscious products and services, always seeking to deliver innovation for a sustainable future. At the corporate level, Sony is implementing and continually improving its globally integrated environmental management system with the aim of realising the Sony Group Environmental Vision, achieving its medium-term environmental targets, and complying fully with legal requirements, regulatory demands, and internal policies established for the Group.

At Sony UK TEC, we align our activities to this goal, delivering committed actions to reducing our carbon footprint, the site’s water, and energy use, and continually investing in renewable energy. Directly linked to this is our approach to Sustainable Supply Chain Management.

Clean Water & Sanitation; Affordable & Clean Energy; Sustainable Cities & Communities; Responsible Consumption & Production; Climate Action; Life Below Water.

As a global brand, we are committed to creating an inclusive, accessible future where everyone belongs.

We leverage creativity and technology to enhance the accessibility of our products, services, and experiences.

Through our commitment to an inclusive future, we strive to enable and empower individuals of all abilities to share Kando (emotion).

This pillar addresses the following United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:

Reduced Inequalities; Quality Education; Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure.

The Sony People Philosophy, unchanged since the beginning, is now described with the phrase, “Special You, Diverse Sony.” With a focus on diversity, equity & inclusion, talent development, and engagement, the Sony Group continues to offer working conditions that contribute to the health and safety of employees as part of our efforts to achieve sustainable growth and generate social value. We are committed to continuing to provide opportunities for employees to improve and make the most of their individual strengths, skills, abilities, and creativity.

At Sony UK TEC, this has translated into a variety of activities relating to creating an inclusive and accessible environment for all, where each individual’s diverse personality and skillset are celebrated. Our current focus is on raising awareness and educating our employees on all aspects of Respect for Human Rights, extending this to our local and global business partners as well. In addition, we are committed to positively contributing to our team’s physical and mental health through establishing a variety of programmes, support networks, and resource libraries accessible to all.

This pillar addresses the following United Nations Sustainable Development Goals:

Gender Equality; Decent Work & Economic Growth; Reduced Inequalities; Good Health & Well-Being.


Promoting biodiversity in our local area

Every year, our UK TEC team comes together for a full-day team-building event away from our premises, aiming to build relationships across the business, have fun and make a difference. Most recently, our event saw us make 165 wooden boxes to support the biodiversity in our local area.

Three wooden units placed on a grey table - a bug hotel, a bat house and a bird box.

Protecting the bees

Continuing the theme of biodiversity, in recent years, our onsite Environmental Centre has become the home of two bee colonies. Many of our team members have been trained by the Bridgend and District Beekeeping Association to care for the beehives, helping to raise awareness about the important part honeybees play in futureproofing global food supplies.

Welsh Pride

One of the many ways in which we celebrate our diverse team is through participating in events that aim to break down stereotypes and barriers to equal opportunities. We had a blast at the 2022 Pride Cymru event and look forward to the next one!

Community Engagement

We seek to support our local community through charity work and sponsorship, and have the welfare of our staff at the heart of our operation.

Our journey to green energy…

Inspiring the Next Generation

To achieve a sustainable future, we firmly believe in the power of engaging with the next generation by introducing opportunities for education outside of the classroom environment.
